             Consistently met an average of 95% accuracy in monthly compliance charge capture reports resulting
             in more timely billing and fewer denials;
             Engaged staff and physicians in collaborative problem solving to improve patient care, streamline
             processes, and maintain fiscal accountability;
             Received national recognition for a variety of clinical care innovations from the Oncology Nursing
             Society Congress, Oncology Roundtable Annual Meeting and publication in the Association of
             Community Cancer Centers “Oncology Issues” May 2009 issue;
